Proud of their hometown's distinct culture and dialect, many natives of Osaka describe their city as "Japan's anti-capital." An antidote to Tokyo's hectic energy, Osaka marches to the beat of its own drum, serving as the country's longtime commercial and industrial hub.
Bring the kids along to Universal Studios Japan and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Venture out of the city with trips to Nara Park (in Nara), Himeji Castle (in Himeji) and Kyoto (Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Arashiyama, &more). There's much more to do: observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, contemplate the long history of Osaka Castle, take a stroll through Dotombori District, and enjoy breathtaking views from Kuchu Teien Observatory.
